Emergency Preparedness and Response  


The fire department of White House, Tennessee will be starting the annual CERT Class for volunteers wishing to aid the community of White House in the event of a disaster. This program will educate members so that they will have the training necessary to assist in light search and rescues, team organization and disaster medical operations. The training program is nationally recognized and highly encouraged because it will give you the necessary knowledge and preparations to handle emergency situations when emergency response teams are not able to meet the demand of the disaster at hand.

The CERT class is a minimum of 20 hours, consisting of both classroom instruction and hands-on disaster training. The number of students for each class is limited to 20. After completion of the class and testing you will receive your CERT certification and an a CERT kit containing many of the tools necessary to respond as a CERT member. 

CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
